I’ll begin this particular blog by saying I don’t believe bloggers begin their site with the idea in mind of it becoming an arena for third party feuds or facilitate a form of stalking.
Friends have brought to my attention an individuals apparent efforts to do just that under the guise of what they have referred to as “guerrilla mail” – which in this case seems to translate to taking note of likes and comments on my blog then visiting the sites of those who have to see if I have left a comment and then responding with a comment for me with a litany of having been somehow wronged and victimized.
There’s an obsessive compulsive element to this after having banned this person from my site and blocking any emails they would attempt to send.
I had repeatedly asked this person not to spam either my blog or email and yet they persisted on a daily basis – not just in singular digits but in volume emails and comments leaving no other recourse but to block – comments that also included less than complimentary references to others who were commenting on my blog.
I deleted a large number of comments having been asked to after archiving them, but also stopped doing so at one point as I don’t respond well to demands, attempts to bully, unfounded accusations, or believe in rewarding bad behavior.
Weeks, perhaps months later this person persists in the only vehicle they can find – the blog sites of others.
I also informed this individual that I was archiving every comment, every email into what would become a downloadable pdf should a cohort or friend of their’s have an issue and actually be interested in concerning themselves with facts.
There’s a very simple question to be asked – and that is would you behave in such a manner and if so for what possible reason?
A secondary question is if you elected to do so would you actually expect others to entertain it?
“Guerrilla mail” or more precisely vindictive spam ? – you be the judge.
I have no intention of befouling another’s blog by engaging in such petty pursuits and my advice if asked would be to exercise caution as this person went to great lengths explaining their personal aversion to actually having a blog of their own due to their “privacy” concerns and yet has no apparent qualms about entrenching themselves in another’s as though they own it and then crying foul should any disagreement arise.
I apologize for any inconvenience others may have experienced and hope this will serve not only as a heads up but a deterrent as well as I’m confident this individual continues to visit this blog to fuel their obsessive compulsive needs.
